Last weekend my mom and sister visited Chris and I in Dalton for the night. The wedding was over a month ago and I had yet to unpack the vast majority of our shower and wedding gifts. I had absolutely no idea where to begin with the giant pile shoved behind our couch. This had been driving me nuts for several weeks...
Point of the story is - I am still the exact same way. Unpacking all of these gifts took me
Until then, my sister came up with a great solution: to use the items as decoration above our kitchen cabinets. Our kitchen is pretty small, but I really like the cabinets. It's functional but definitely not my ideal set-up. I have always loved to cook and definitely need more counter space. I can't wait until we own our own home and dad can build me the pinterest kitchen of my dreams! Having a dad who is an awesome woodworker comes in pretty handy (more on that later!). Anyway - here are a few photos of what we chose to put above the cabinets. I ended up only using a couple of the serving pieces - I was afraid to use any of my metalworks pieces because I wasn't sure if they would tarnish. I'm handling one area at a time so I'll post some more pictures when I perfect other spaces.
Ignore that gaping hole above the stove - I'm working on something to go there right now. Any good ideas?
The small basket holds all of the cups for Chris's Keurig - I hate those ugly things!
Hey, it put all of our old textbooks to good use! I was glad to get all those ugly electricity guides off the shelf! ;)
We finally found a rug we both loved, so now that the living room is almost cleaned up I'll post some pictures of it!
